"Unless The Creator Decides To Do The Correction, We Can't Do The Correction" - Hawa Koomsom (VIDEO)


The Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Mavis Hawa Koomson has hinted that until God decides to do his own corrections, neither her Ministry nor the Akufo-Addo government can do anything about the wash ashore of fishes and dolphins at some beaches in the country.


According to Madam Koomson, the recent wash ashore of fishes and dolphins which occurred in the country was natural and could not have been curtailed.


Addressing Journalists in Accra on Sunday, she said "So we all know this is a natural occurrence and there’s nothing we can do about it unless the creator himself decides to do the correction. We cannot do the correction"


“Ours is to find out, investigate and know what exactly the problem is. If it is a natural occurrence, there’s nothing we can do,”


The Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture together with her team and the police visited various locations which witnessed the incident and appealed to the residents who had stocks of the fishes and dolphins to return them.


While some of the fishes and dolphins were retrieved, some other residents refused to give them out.


Madam Hawa Koomson sighted Mexico as a country which is experiencing same faith.


“It happens as, at that time, it wasn’t only in Ghana; other countries also experienced it. So, for example, Mexico also experienced the same thing. So it’s a natural occurrence, and there is nothing we can do, but we only know the causes of the kills,”
